Fat lot of use you lot are

Well, I waited. I waited and I waited. Alas, nobody applied the sole of their foot to  the seat of my pants. I decided in the end that I would have to galvanise myself. So, I set to and wrote almost all of the sock article – it still needs photographs taking and a few finishing tweaks to the text, but it should be published this weekend. Once that was drafted, I cooked a couple of pork chops and some roasties for lunch. That almost did for me, I can tell you. After lunch, I finished the Norby hat. It awaits tassels, though I am not certain that it will get them. Like the Norie, it has come out a little on the large side.

What to do next? Some hexapuffs? The Senneh Sock? The Handspun sock? The commissions? Work on the Windswept Shawl?

I am finding it difficult to work up the energy to rake through the UFO basket or look for needles and Senneh is sitting very conveniently on my desk, so I think that it may be no contest. Then again, I may go for an early night with the new books…

I have a list of prompts t be caught up on and I shall be working my way through them here, or at Scattered Thoughts depending on where the post most naturally sits. I have elected to tackle the prompts not in date order necessarily but to seize upon prompts that offer me space in which to write down the things that I am feeling the need to say. Even if I need to crowbar it in. The thing is, I am going to continue to be short of time and space in which to write and so a two-for-one is useful and I hope to do as many of those as I can. Seems like a plan? … Continue readingA Month in France: Nothing is Lost
